On Thursday Russia's Supreme Court ruled that Jehovah's Witnesses was an "extremist" organisation. Russian news agencies reported the church must hand over all its property to the state. A Russian Jehovah's Witnesses representative said the group will appeal the decision in the European Court of Human Rights. Russian authorities have put several of the group's publications on a list of banned extremist literature.
